Diplo Treats Us With A Two-Hour ‘Old Skool’ Hip-Hop Mix

Diplo

It’s been a minute since Diplo dropped a purely hip-hop mix, but now, the Mad Decent head honcho has delivered two hours of the best “old skool” classics that should surely bring on some nostalgia. Instead of trying to track down some of his famous friends, the superstar decided to premiere the mix during a special solo episode of ‘Diplo & Friends’ on BBC Radio 1.

Diplo gives us a nice blend of all the best in hip-hop from the likes of Notorious B.I.G., 2pac, Nas, J Dilla, The Fugees and many more. It’s also worth noting that he did not forget to add some A Tribe Called Quest after the passing of the legendary Phife Dawg, as he dropped their 1993 single “Electric Relaxation”. For him to be able to bring in so many classics in just two hours shows Diplo’s talent as a DJ as well as his knowledge of hip-hop music. He may be popular right now as a result of his dance music productions, but it was hip-hop, and specifically old school hip-hop, where it all started for Diplo.
